Does this have a holder for 4x4” filters?

Does this have a holder for 4x4” filters?
Asked by: Stone
Although the UMB-1 trays are designed for 4x5.65 filters, they will hold 4x4 filters as well, though they will not be matted on the sides. They should cover the viewing area of all but the very widest lenses.
